Default Re: Samsung Sued Over Blu-ray Players That Won't Play All Discs

Well, I still own my BDP-1200 and since it's last firmware update when Pirates came out, it has played everything perfectly. I think the firmware update thing has really settled down a lot and any player should be functional with the current firmware.

FWIW We have heard of players being screwy and dying from the HD DVD camp as well.

All my Blu-ray players work all the time, so I am losing belief in the argument of unreliability.
